Denis are you calling me hard hearted?
Thanks brother Denis for the advice, I found the ebook and I have downloaded it, I'll read.
sister if you seek knowledge but harden your heart from the holy spirit , you will only see what you want to see ..... it is true that the current state of men leaves to be desired but GODS word is GODS word .... he sees what we can,t . and he demands obedience .
I would like to ask a question did Ellen White preach and teach men? did Ellen white have authority over men? was Ellen white a spiritual leader in the SDA church? an honest answer to the above questions would amplify the hypocrisy and double standard in the SDA church.
Seems like some of the others around here you can not tell the difference between a Prophet and Pastor. Double standard you say we are supposedly the people of the book, but I note some think that we should be the people of the worldly churches. In other words they think we should join Mother Babylon and her Daughters. Why do you even bother keeping the Sabbath?
Prophet and pastor, both are gifts of God.
does has The Holy Spirit gifts exclusively for men and others only for women? I think that not, I think that God look the heart of the persons, for call them and prepare them for service him.
Elijah, says: "Mother Babylon", are you referring to the Catholic Church?
I am aware of some female prophets in the Bible but I can't seem to find a female priest in the old testament or a female apostle, overseer, pastor, elder in the Bible. If there are none why do you think Satan wants us to now initiate this evil practice?
Well said Jason. People, if God is a God that changeth not, why do you think he would say in one text women should not be Pastor's and approve it somewhere else.
See Janny asked a perfect question, why are we going against God's word. Satan wants us to believe a lie, and he will make our mind believe we are right and others are wrong,
Proverbs 14:12King James Version (KJV)
12 There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.
I suggest that any member here, search the scrirptures, and go to God in prayer, and ask him to tell you the desires of his heart. The God we serve does not change, and I do not think this pleases Him.
Although Ellen White was present during the formation of the Seventh-day Adventist movement, she was not a part of its formal church leadership. Moreover, in Acts of the Apostles, she made it clear: “Pastors are needed—faithful shepherds—who will not flatter God’s people, nor treat them harshly, but who will feed them with the bread of life—men who in their lives feel daily the converting power of the Holy Spirit and who cherish a strong, unselfish love toward those for whom they labor” (526.1, emphasis added).
